Anyone else a victim of teen vandalism?

For the second Saturday night in a row, our house was TP'd and our car was vandalized, presumably by teens thinking this was a harmless joke. A week ago Saturday flour was dumped all over the (brand new)car, along with toilet paper and silly string. The damp air then causes the flour to turn to paste and it still isn't out of all the crevices of the car. This last Saturday, the same car was covered with Crisco, rubbed into every door opening, windows, all paint surfaces, etc. in addition to toilet paper in the trees and the ground. Since Crisco is not water soluble, it took hours to clean and still is not completely off. An egg thrown at the car scratched the paint.
We know of one other family that was "attacked" on Saturday and are wondering if there are others out there. Our high school child has no idea who is responsible, and we'd like to try and put an end to this. Sunday's are starting to be a bad day.
